28th February 2017: Tunisia Inquests
Statement from Nick Longman, Managing Director of TUI UK:
“What happened on that tragic day on 26 June 2015 in Tunisia shocked and devastated all of us. Our immediate heartfelt condolences went to the families and friends of those so tragically affected. On behalf of everyone at TUI UK, I would like to again extend our deepest sympathy. We are so very sorry for the pain and loss those affected have suffered.
“Over these last few weeks we have heard very personal and very moving accounts of what happened during and after the terrorist attack.
“We have played a full and active role throughout the process of the Inquests and we, like others, wanted to understand the specific circumstances surrounding these tragic events.
“We have now heard the Coroner’s findings and his comments regarding the provision of security and visibility of travel advice. These are complex matters and we have already taken steps to raise awareness of the FCO’s Travel Aware campaign. Together with the travel industry in light of these comments we must now take some time to further reflect on these areas.
“On that day the world changed. As an industry we have adapted and we will need to continue to do so. This terrorist incident has left its mark on all of us and its impact will always be remembered.”
